Nah you can checkmate corruption without decreasing the size of it. For example, you can have more nonpartisan influence in the electoral process, involving people redrawing district lines and putting an end to gerrymandering. You can set term limits and force politicians to stop sucking the COCKS of every corp that donates to them.
Then you go after the corporations and take money out of politics and you take away their monopoly over modern society. Government in its true form should be an agent for the people, something that only exists to give power to the will of its citizens.
I'd argue that smaller government isn't necessarily the way to go because regardless of whether or not free health care and social security, or the department of education was a thing, this politician would still be corrupted.
The reason why the government is shit isn't because it's so big, but that people don't care and they don't bother to inform themselves or invest in movements that do care.

So making companies and monopolies bigger will shrink corruption?
I realize that she is a senator's daughter, but this is strictly a business decision, made by a corporation. The only way to stop practices like these are 1) regulation, 2) a change in patent laws that allows pharma companies to pull shit like this, or 3) some sort of class action lawsuit (which may not even be possible given the current laws, and would certainly be prohibitively expensive).
2 of those 3 options require government intervention. Laws and oversight. It's not like I disagree that the government is bloated and wildly inefficient, but it is, at least nominally, meant to protect the interests of its citizens. Corporations have no such obligation. They are purely money making machines, and are formed such that no individual within any given company really faces any risk, no matter how immoral or illegal their business practices are.
It honestly just blows my mind that people can condemn the government, and condemn unions, yet have nothing to say about monopolies and massive corporate greed and scummy business practices.
How do you read a story like this and go "well this is clearly the government's fault." Who else do you expect to regulate pharmas? Or telecoms? Or any other major monopolistic corporation? Should we expect to have to create a class action lawsuit for every single one of these unjust price hikes?
I mean, the only reason we're seeing this story on here at all is because people actually know what a fucking epi-pen IS. How about the hundreds or thousands of other, slightly more obscure or niche medicines that are being price hiked by hundreds or thousands of times? Who exactly has the power to stop these abuses, save the government?
Not that I expect it to, mind you. As long as the money = speech Supreme Court ruling stays active, campaigns are staggeringly expensive, and lobbying has morphed into "sponsor a senator" activities, since no one can afford to run without them. And pharmas are biiig sponsors.
Fuck man. I guess what I'm saying is that there is no answer. Small government just means we get bent over by uncontrolled corporations, big government as it stands is too far in the pocket of corporations to effectively trust-bust, or regulate, anyway.

Now you have a smaller government and you still have corruption. We need anti corruption laws more than anything.

its not that simple though, look at America now a days, sure companies come and go but things like tobacco mega conglomerates and big pharma DONT GIVE A FUCK if YOU buy there shit or not, because no matter what someone else is going to. if is as simple as that for normal products such as cereal, paper towels, some food, shit like that, but those aren't the corrupt ones man.

Well, the only thing you can do is to "vote" with your money, sure some big businesses will have customers even if you personally don´t buy their products, but you can´t force other people to behave the way you want (that is what the state does). I say drop all the limits and legislation and let the free market balance itself. It will take some time, but true free markets always seek some kind of equilibrium. Generally big businesses are afraid of the small ones simply because they can to things for less money, therefore their products are cheaper. Also, when you are small-time enterpreneur you can find rises and falls of demand much quicker and you are generally much more adaptable to changes in the market. Now imagine how much easier it would be for small businesses to survive if they wouldn´t sift their way through god knows how many pages of tax code and "supporting" legislation.
In modern information age it´s laughably easy to tell your opinions to the masses. You don´t like particular company? Do a video on it, post your facts and fact-based opinions a post it on Youtube, or do a couple of tweets or whatever.

And do you have only one shop where you can buy those? Can they do what they want? It´s the same old dilemma Walmart vs. Mom&Pops shops, some people prefer one other another. The thing in that example is that state legislation make it much harder for small businesses to stay in black numbers than it is for big businesses.

Large govs include large public sector. No rich corporate owners to bribe about anything.

Federal authority versus states rights has been argued since the inception of this nation, and never has states authority seemed more enticing. I get that some areas are more liberal than others, but they shouldnt be allowed to cram that shit down the throat of everyone else in other areas.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the TSA, and I’ve been involved in numerous checks on Bags, and I have over 300 confirmed water bottles. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top X-ray operator in the entire US. You are nothing to me but just another ISIS. I will take your shaving cream with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of "Mcdonalds" workers across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your liquids. You’re fucking thirsty, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can pat you down in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in telling people to take their shoes off, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the TSA and I will use it to its full extent to determine if you have any prohibited Items and then let you go, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will will open all of your bags and tell you you cant bring stuff. You’re fucking checked, kiddo.
